Why We Love It

  • The luxe, eco-friendly resort is sprawled over miles of mangrove-lined canals and a powdery private beach
  • Waterslides, adventure camp and free meals for those five and under make it a paradise for kids
  • Grown-ups hide out at the adults-only infinity edge pool or the mammoth spa
  • Rooms are plush with separate jetted tubs and glass-enclosed showers

Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Nestled among 45 acres of protected mangroves and canals, and running along 1,180 feet of white sand beach, the Fairmont Mayakoba is a private, eco-conscious resort for those travelers who want to be immersed in pure, undiluted nature.

Just a few minutes north of Playa del Carmen, tranquility is king at this oceanfront resort. Each guest room comes with a private balcony overlooking a lush sprawl of lagoon, mangrove or powdery beach, and bathrooms have large jetted tubs and separate glass-enclosed showers. 

The six on-site dining options are pricey but well-reviewed by TripAdvisor members; two of the restaurants are rated AAA 4-Diamond. The decadent Willow Stream spa is roughly half the size of a football field with two mineral soaking pools. Free bikes, tennis courts and five pool options keep the scenery fresh. Venture to nearby El Camaleon Golf Club or Tres Rios Ecopark for an off-property excursion.

From the press:
  • "Few properties in Riviera Maya offer the level of privacy the Fairmont Mayakoba does" --
  • "The Fairmont Mayakoba is an eco-friendly alternative to the monolithic resorts clustered along the Caribbean coast" -- Travel + Leisure
